Question about Refrigerators
I just bought a used Amana fridge (SXD26VW... P1315202WW) and to move it, the doors had to be removed. I have two problems, since I didn't watch how the guys unhooked it and I need to fix this before my husband gets home from work, for a variety of reasons.
1/To connect wires on top of freezer door hinge.
There Is a plug for four wires, another single plug. I can figure out where those go, but have not idea about the other two wires. One pink with no hardware off the end and another green/blue that has a bolt thing. I don't know where they attach. Is there some sort of diagram. I googled, but couldn't find anything.
2/This is driving me crazy...When the doors came off there was a long clear hose that goes up through the door of the freezer and hooks up to the water fountain. It came out of the door. I can't get it back up through the little hole through the door and do not know how to reattach it. (it actually looks like it was chewed off). I tried taking the moulding off the dispenser and was able to, but don't know how to get the hose back up there. How much of a Pain in the Behind is it to fix this? If I don't fix it and we still hook up the water for the ice maker will there be leakage....Can you help me? Before my husband gets home from work in a couple of hours?
FOLLOW THESE STEP
Step 1: If the door won't shut tightly, tip the refrigerator slightly backward by propping up the front of the unit or unscrewing the front leveling legs two complete turns. Experiment with this adjustment until the door stays closed, but don't tip the unit very far out of front-to-back level.
Step 2: If leveling doesn't work, tighten the hinge screws. You may have to open the door (especially the freezer door) to turn these screws. On some units, you may have to remove a hinge cap or trim to reach the screws; pry off the cap or trim with a screwdriver. Sagging and looseness can be corrected by shimming the door hinges. Loosen the hinge and place a hinge-shaped cardboard shim between the hinge and the door. Then tighten the hinge again. Sagging may also be caused by a wrongly placed shim. In this case, you can correct the problem by removing the shim. Experiment with the shims; you may be able to eliminate the sagging.
Step 3: If the door is warped, tighten the screws that hold the inner door shell to the outer door shell. You may have to change or adjust the door gasket after making this adjustment.
Step 4: Check the catch. Newer units have a magnetic catch on the door. If the door doesn't latch properly, remove the magnetic strike from the inner door shell and shim it slightly with a piece of thin cardboard. You may have to adjust the gasket to conform with the new shim.
BY THIS YOUR PROBLEM WILL BE SOLVED.PLEASE RATE IT AS HELPFULL THAK YOU...........

To answer the question about the hose, They have broke it. The hose shouldnt come out of the door. It actually unplugs from the bottom of the refrigerator so if it out of the door, you have to buy a new hose and then take the door apart to reatach. To re apply the hose you should call a technician. They will have to order a new one and the whole door usually needs to be taken off. Sorry for the bad news. About the wires if you get me a model # i can get a diagram and tell you where they go.
